Women of Influence – Jenenne Whitfield
The Community House

Jenenne Whitfield is the President & CEO of The Heidelberg Project. Prior to her involvement with The Heidelberg Project she had a successful career in banking. Then, in 1993, she took a wrong turn and drove down a polka-dotted street– through a colorful chaos of paint and people– and asked a paint-spattered man, “what is all this?” The man was artist Tyree Guyton and what he told her sparked an obsession that changed her life forever. She could never have imagined giving up her fourteen-year career to work in a non-profit arts-related venture, but she recognized this seemingly wrong turn as a higher calling. With a leap of faith, she embarked on the challenge of a lifetime.
